Fear and Courage

A former student and continuing friend, Theresa MacPhail, does a segment of NPR's This I Believe called "Courage Comes With Practice." Here's, also, Theresa's blog.
...Courage isn't a natural attribute of human beings. I believe that we have to practice being courageous; using courage is like developing a muscle. The more often I do things that scare me or that make me uncomfortable, the more I realize that I can do a lot more than I originally thought I could do.
